What is Pick and Pack?
The Pick and Pack is processing small to large quantities of product, often truck or train loads, and disassembling them, picking the relevant product for each destination, and re-packaging with shipping label affixed and invoice included. Typically, the supplier is also responsible for shipping. Dynamic’s transportation division moves thousands of shipments per month, so our pick and pack customers can confidently entrust us with transportation regardless of the shipping mode or location.
Dynamic 3PL Designs the Optimal Pick and Pack Solution
The ideal pick and pack solution doesn’t just happen; you have to design it. Our approach involves the following:
Understand Customer Requirements
To ensure an efficient and effective pick and pack service for our customers, we spend the time upfront to fully understand their requirements. We walk the process from the time the goods are received to the time they reach the end customer. We also learn about our customers so we can ensure a great experience from start to finish. We recognize that our customers won’t be happy unless we take care of their customers.
Once we fully understand, the customer requirements, the Dynamic team designs the optimal pick and pack process for the situation. Dynamic focuses on the following design elements:
Pick and Pack Process. We create a process that includes layout, receiving inbound shipments, inventory system entry, proper storage, item location, work area, packaging, kitting, labeling, volumes, transportation, and delivery.
Documentation and Training. Once the pick and pack process is complete, we document it and train our team. The goal is to leave nothing to chance.
Technology. To properly manage a pick and pack operation, you need a transportation management system (TMS) and warehouse management system (WMS), and the appropriate scanners. Our pick and pack operation is well established and we use state-of-the-art technology to serve our customers.
Transportation. A pick and pack operation is only as good as its inbound and outbound transportation. Dynamic’s transportation group moves thousands of shipments per month in every mode. For our pick and pack operations, we are always looking for opportunities to improve the delivery time and the cost per unit.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). You can’t manage what you can’t measure. At Dynamic, we measure each project in our warehouse using KPIs and scorecards. The goal is to measure a few important indicators of success, rather than a lot of metrics that don’t guide us toward continuous improvement opportunities.
